is not the only one in the spotlight for the past four years. we have seen sasha and malia obama grow up right before our eyes. malia is now a high school freshman and her little sister, sasha, is in her first year of medical school -- not medical school. middle school. she didn't grow up that fast. >> maybe one day. >> maybe. never know. she's smart enough. nbc's kristen welker is live at the white house with a look at the first daughters. hello, kristen. >> reporter: hey, alex. well, good afternoon. it is amazing how much they have grown, though, and those who know the family well say these next four years will bring new challenges and some new perks. >> and now, the president of the united states. >> reporter: the night belonged to their father. but when malia and sasha stepped onto the stage at grant park election night it was hard not to marvel at how much they had matured. >> even i was struck on election night this year just seeing how much they have grown from four years ago. >> reporter: they were so young when they moved into the white house. sasha just 7 and malia 10. now at 11 and

years ago, i will say in the air and certainly in temperatures of temperature, but certainly the obama administration that hopes maybe coming out of some of the celebration still in the air here they'll start or try to bring the country together. you mentioned that vice-president biden will be going first, in just a few moments, justice sonia sotomayor will swear him in and he and the president will be at arlington national cemetery laying a wreath at the tomb of unknown and in the blue room hine me on the aren't side because the constitution says he needs to be sworn in on january 20th and the ceremonial stuff will happen on the capitol west front tomorrow. some of the celebration started yesterday, a children's inaugural ball the first lady went to along with dr. jill biden and trying to get folks involved this and also the president and first lady participating in a day of service, they participated in a project here, service project here in washington d.c. and they had a lot of cabinet members, the vice-president and others doing that as well and when the president had a chance to

term. four years ago, president barack obama welcomed the weight of that legacy casting himself as a blank canvas to project our lofty hopes for change and great expectations for the nation. the first item on his agenda, that bright legacy and suggested those hopes were well placed. president obama tried and succeeded where previous democratic presidents tried and failed. he enacted legislation that provided universal health care for all americans. four years after the first inauguration our lofty hopes for what was possible have been dragged back down to earth by the cold hand of reality and a republican dominated house of representatives. this time around, our great expectations may feel like managed expectations. take a look at president obama's second term official portrait. does that look like the face of a man that's lost hope for the future? after losing congressional support for his agenda, president obama urged us to hang on to the high hopes of the 2011 state of the union address. >> we do big things. >> just yesterday, vice president joe biden reminded us that this ad

that barack obama is self-confident and you see a seemingly different president to d today than we saw a year or two ago when we went through the debt nonsense in the middle of 2011. i think that he feels much more able to pull the strings and know what the power is and isn't. he's been scandal-free, and in part, that comes from the top. no disrespect to any of the presidents who got into problems bu but he sets a standard that people know the line they have to tow and they know it and that is why the administration has done well, and he will have the republicans at him and that is going to keep him from the overreach from the republicans. >> and history is what the president has to worry about, because this is almost like deja vu all over again and it takes the scandal out of f the scandal out of it, but the fog of war and what may happen, and what the president has to be cognizant of and not just the presidents that you mentioned, but lyndon baines johnson and other presidents that in the second term things happen o outside of their reach, and he needs to be cognizant of history. >> thank

remember that inspiring call from president obama exactly four years, to end partisan politics. if you were keeping score, and we are, that promise would actually fall into the incomplete category. promises considered, mostly clept, more jobs and a middle class tax break, ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan and, of course, making health care accessible for all. tomorrow morning the president will be making even more promises. the question though, can he keep them? back with me now bill schneider, resident fellow for the think tank and lynn sweet of the chicago sun times." bill, your organization spends a fair amount of time on important issues of the day. what promises can we expect to hear from president obama tomorrow? >> immigration reform. i mean, that's something he neglected in his first term and didn't give it any real priority, and it's very important. really helped him get elected, re-elected rather. guns will come up, i think, because the mood is right for that. i'm not sure how far he'll be able to go with that because of the resistance in the house, but he'll fight the good

] fight 7 signs of aging flawlessly. cc what's possible. >>> four years ago president obama said -- >> on this day we gather because we've chosen hope over fear. unity of purpose over conflict and discord. on the day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics. >> and any notion that an obama administration would bring about an end to dogma or discord quickly evaporated during the first of the presidency and seemed positively quaint after republicans resumed control of the house. the lessons learned by the administration in the first four years have made the president a very different leader. far less conciliatory in to be and arguably in substance. in the central message of 2008 to change the way the ligs does. he characterized the messy political process as something not to overcome, but rather to embrace. >> democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. we have our own opinions. each of us has deeply-held beliefs. and when we go thr
